Mumbai, October 26 - Kerala Theaters are gearing up to showcase the first big film in nearly 7 months. Dulquer Salmaan's "Kurup" is set to light up theaters on November 12. While most of the Malayalam films, including small to big-budget, succumbed to the digital world, "Kurup" is one of the few films held back for a long time to give it a theatrical release.
And now, as the crime thriller is gearing up for its worldwide release, the theater owners of Kerala have decided to give "Kurup" a maximum number of screens to show their love and affection for Dulquer for holding his film to support them. The official number of screens is yet to be revealed but it is said to be Salmaan's widest release ever in Kerala.
"Kurup" will be Dulquer Salmaan's first release since the box office hit "Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal" (February 2020) as a leading hero. "Kurup" is based on the life of a fugitive and one of the most wanted criminals, Sukumara Kurup.
The movie is directed by Srinath Rajendran and produced by Salmaan under his banner Wayfarer Films. The movie also stars Sobhita Dhulipala as the female lead along with Indrajith Sukumaran, Tovino, Sunny Wayne, and Shine Tom Chacko in key roles.
